I don't know if I'll even try predicting this one. OutKast, Radiohead, and LCD Soundsystem feel like certainties though.

Least predictable of the lists so far. Only two artists have put in more than one appearance so far (Kanye and Radiohead, unsurprisingly). I'd imagine they'll be followed by more of the usual suspects.

#s 50-41 have been added. Good showing for Radiohead and Missy Elliott. With five songs already, it looks like Radiohead are gonna dominate this list as much as the '90s one.

Entering the home stretch: #s 30-21 have been added. And we finally have our first Arcade Fire song! Expecting a strong showing in the top 20.

Radiohead has 4 songs from Kid A, 1 from Amnesiac, and 1 from In Rainbows. "There There" may show up in the top 20 if they want to get a song from Hail to the Thief in there, though it would be a somewhat surprising choice for the top Radiohead song.

There were 6 Radiohead songs on the last list as well, but it’d be weird if there weren’t one more in the top 20.

#s 20-11 have been added. Mostly obvious. Here are some clear top 10 entries now:
- Seven Nation Army
- Something by Arcade Fire (Wake Up, maybe?)
- Take Me Out
- Paper Planes
- Crazy
- All My Friends (strong chance of being #1, knowing their patterns of #1s)
- Hey Ya!
Jesus Walks and Hurt have a chance, but I was more sure of them being in the top 20 than the top 10. I also forgot about Stan, another biggie.
